A Maker Approach to Art and Interactivity: An Introductory Workshop to Electronics for Creative Projects April 9th & 10th

Ever wanted to make a copper pipe sing? Or use water to activate lights?

This hands-on, jargon-free workshop will introduce you to physical computing and show you how to develop and realise art proposals with interactive elements.  Our artist-maker approach is all about tinkering with art, electronic and everyday materials to learn through experimentation and discovery.

By the end of the weekend you will have a basic understanding of the principals involved in easy-to-make light and sound responsive systems and the materials required. You will also have collaborated with other workshop participants to create an electronically triggered soundscape or an interactive environment/artwork.

Make_Create_Innovate will be joined by Robby Collins (www.clockworks.ie) in the afternoon of the second day. Robby will offer some key insights into how artists have engaged with technology and what supports are available to develop your ideas further.

This workshop is for creative people (both professionals and non-professionals) who want to do something different whether it’s programme a touch-activated sound effects on the theatre stage or design a unique funky birthday card for a friend.  It is especially suitable for anyone involved in engaged arts that support arts participation and/or invite audience interaction.
